    How do i do that?
    Read each note in the tutorial.

    In particular this one

    Note   Note

    Setting a folder template for all folders will also disable Automatic Folder Type Discovery. You will still always be able to manually change the template and view of any folder to what you like though.

    Automatic Folder Type Discovery is when Windows will automatically change the template of a folder to match the file type of the last file added or saved in the folder. For example, if your folder contains music files and you add a picture file, then Windows may change the folder template and view to the "Picture" template to match the new picture file.

    They are still there, and they are annoying, but after using 7+ tweaker, they only seem to appear if i have two or more grouped programs running on the taskbar.

    I have set my folders to general items and checked apply this template to all subfolders. Will see if it works.

    Just had a look at that software and it would appear to override some windows settings.

    Note   Note

    7+ Taskbar Tweaker allows you to configure various aspects of the Windows taskbar.
    Most of the configuration options it provides can’t be tweaked using the taskbar properties or the registry.


    So no matter what we suggest the program could interfere. You need someone else who has installed this software to advise.

    I found a way to get rid of the language input indicator, with the help from this guide. It's a bit tricky and requires a bit of tweaking, but it works.

    Well done. The strange thing is that those instructions would appear to be the same as in this post:

    I think its because you have to check the use the desktop language bar when itís available option before you hide the language input indicator, which wasn't highlighted in your screengrab. If not, then I don't know. Anyway, thanks for your help.

    I found a way to get rid of the safely remove hardware icon by following this guide. You have to download and install a program to get rid of it, which is ridicilious. I can understand if you are using a program to perform multiple tweaks on your computer, but having to install a program and accept its agreements just to get rid of the icon is a bit silly.

    If anyone else have a better solution, please let me know.

    I have also downloaded winaero tweaker and ultimate windows tweaker to see if they can help with some of this.

    Well i tried windows ultimate tweaker. Honestly it didnt solve any of my problems, and it seemed to mess up some of the settings on my computer.

    P.S does anyone know how to disable the pop-up message that asks if a program was installed correctly?

    It never helps with anything and its honestly a bit annoying.

    If you mean in standard Windows (not using some tweaking software) then you only get this if you try to install software in compatibility mode.

    If you run Whatver_Installer.exe in compatibility mode for Windows 7 (for example) then it will ask if it worked. That is fair enough - you decided to try running a program using whatever steps they do for Windows 7 compatibility. If you just run it standard (under Windows 10) then it will not ever ask.

    I'd suggest not running any tweaking software as they all end up being a bit annoying in the end. If you run stock you know where you are. Up to you of course. My $2 only.
